Susan Gordanshekan is an German director and screenwriter of this totally relaxing, funny and winning romance film. On the surface, the film is about two gorgeous strangers, both Iranians, Mina and Kian, who agree to marry for practical, even understandable reasons. Their challenge is, of course, to make the marriage work, but their differences keep popping up like annoying obstacles, impeding the possibility of harmony, let alone the hope of love. The real-world context of their relationship speaks so much to 21st century themes of cultural displacement—to accommodation and integration. Not only are these young people new to each other but they are also Iranians speaking in a foreign language, adjusting awkwardly to their new German home while aiming so hard to please. And then there’s the cat, a mangy mop of a loser that starts to assume all the metaphorical weight of the marriage itself.
